Friday, November 14th 2008 - Musical Headliner

I am proud to announce the headline act for our musical after party at this year's Festival. On our first night, Friday, November 14th, we will present Joe Higgins from Victoria, BC as our featured performer! The After Party Music Stage will be held at the Upper Crust Banquet Hall, on the Southeast corner of the Greenwood and North 85th intersection.

Joe Higgins is a native of Scotland, currently lives in Victoria and has traveled abroad with his music, playing all over Europe, Canada and the United States. He has a masterful wit, charming songs and a delightful acoustic touch.

I am proud to see such an amazing performer and good friend be a part of this gathering of good tidings!

Monday, April 28th - Greenwood.

Saturday's shoot did not take place, for either film, and Monday seemed a better choice for the footage I needed for "The Pass". Fae and I embarked from Bothell, where indifferent shitheads are tearing down trees and old town charm, to Greenwood...where indifferent shitheads are tearing down trees and old town charm. The thing is, the forecast was for rain, and I couldn't shoot on Saturday due to this abnormal sunshine. So, what did I have late Monday afternoon? Yep. I just used my blue Cokin filter and toyed with a few aperture settings...a few angles later and I had my footage! Aside from titles, I am done with this one!

I have been reviewing developed film reels, of which I have more than two dozen. Not only is "This Way and That" in this collection, I also found the footage for the 2005 production of "Chasing a Rainbow" starring the magnificant Derick Snow ("snoweyes") and the enstranged Bret Mix.

I hope to shoot for "Water from the Mountain" soon. June 30th is the deadline for this year's Kurosawa competition, and I feel I may be cramming at the very last.
